13 Nov – 10 Dec 2022
For four weeks, the Month of European Film, Europe’s own film and award season, celebrates the fantastic diversity of European film. Across Europe, partner cinemas in 35 countries from Reykjavik to Athens, from Lisbon to Bucharest, but also including small towns and networks, highlight European films, presenting special programmes, events and dedicated retrospectives. In the same period, our partner MUBI presents a special focus on European films, allowing film lovers around the world to participate.
The Month of European Film kicks off on 13 November with the European Arthouse Cinema Day and the European Film Academy’s Young Audience Award. Instead of a uniform catalogue, each participating cinema is creating a unique program according to their expertise and catering to their audience’s taste. The Month of European Film then culminates on 10 December in the 35th European Film Awards in Reykjavik. The ceremony includes the announcement of the nominations for the LUX Audience Award, bringing European films right back to the public and involving them in the vote for the winner.
